The last is too much for her to deal with alone and she seeks help from Miss V.Cricket, the main character, grapples with family issues of death, abandonment, and mental health. Cricket is immediately a likeable and entertaining girl whose dysfunctional family is challenging, to say the least.Jo Hackl deserves 5 stars to write a book that captures both the young and the young at heart in this way. Scharnhorst, ein General des Fortschritts? Thanks to the vivid imagery and attention to detail in the book, as I read I nearly literally could see, smell, taste, touch and hear various aspects of the woods, the ghost town, and everything else along the way. Cricket faces very realistic, and, in some cases, adult challenges, but Hackl handles them with great finesse, tackling the topics in a way that is age appropriate but never patronizing.I enjoyed it twice.
